all things must pass

chris has found a helpful lawyer in KY--more difficult than it sounds, as the woman had gone to nearly every law office in the county for a consultation, which meant that every firm had a conflict of interest when chris called to discuss their taking the case on. sigh. she has been very thorough.

the lawyer he has retained sounds good; he even thought of getting a continuance so that chris' other son nate can come visit as planned next week. it is an enormous relief as at least 2 days were spent on the phone, trying to find representation, and hearing so many say "she was in here for a consult so we can't take the case" was discouraging--to say the least. now, he may have a shred of a chance to have his side heard. a snowball's chance in hell, maybe, but a chance at least!

now we can concentrate on getting the travel trailer cleaned out for nate's visit. i lived in that trailer for 2-3 years out in cascabel--i have many fond memories of good times in remote places. it's a 23' coachman and should be a lot of fun as a spare bedroom! nate will be here next week, wednesday i think, so we'd better get a move on with this idea, or else he'll be sleeping indoors on the couch--and it's a lot shorter than he is!

thank you for all the good thoughts and prayers. i want to ask you all to send some to jerry's mom, tortured soul that she is. i am sending her compassionate thoughts, wishing her the peace she needs to allow jerry to visit and get to know his father again. they need to have contact again.

Amen everything Kath just wrote. I posted to Chris's blog, too, but it seems to have disappeared into the ether.

Hugs to you both.

Ditto to the above sentiments. And in addition, I hope you and Chris have a very special first (of many) Valentine's Day together.

with beauty before me I walk... It is no surprise that Chris is handling this like a gentleman. He is planting good things - I am sure he will reap them as well.
